This post is part 2 of upgrading my bucket, but is now more focused on the armor part of the upgrade.

I have the Aker MR2800 and I mounted it in my chest and when I turned the sound on so you could hear me talk it would squeal pretty loud.

I had to adjust the output to the wireless mic and the volume to the Aker but I still had the feedback at a volume you could hear me.

I Took and moved the Aker down to my stomach inside my armor and that helped a little.

I took my Aker and put a thin rubber foam all around it except for the front that velcros to the armor.
I got the foam from Grainger and it helped reduce the feedback a little more.

I also took the wireless mic and made a foam piece to go on the mic pickup. I took the foam piece off the mic that came with it and slid mine onto it. It's not 100% but it reduced the feedback now to a point where I can have the volume loud enough for people to hear me.

​I put the wireless receiver in the back of my armor plate. I also have a Hyperdyne labs voice changer wired into the receiver and an on / off switch that controls the power to the system.

I have a push to talk wire that I run from the voice changer down my arm to my hand. I also run a wire from the voice changer to my Aker in the front of my armor.

I made plastic clips to hold the wires in place.

​I took and cut little pieces of that rubber foam and glued it inside the ridge part of the clips to hold the wire firmly but allow for movement. I then took velcro and attached it to the ends of the clips. I took and placed the other side of the velcro on the armor.
